Community Bible Study
Adult Classes begin September 5 from 9:30 - 11:30 am

CBS is an interdenominational Bible study available to people across the world. This fall Men's, Women's and Co-ed groups will meet at OSLC. 

These Old Testament books tell the story of how God delivered His chosen people, the Israelites, from Egyptian slavery and established them as a new nation. 

Not just history, these books tell the story of a holy God's faithfulness to weak and sinful people like us.  This study will provide amazing opportunities for spiritual growth!

Topics Covered: doubt and faith, complaining and grace, crisis and intervention, failure and repentance 

Registration is $35 per person and weekly free will offerings which support the CBS ministry world-wide. There are concurrent programs for infants and children through teens staffed by trained teachers and nursery attendants.

Interested? Contact Boo DeVane, Secretary at 910-986-1272.

We are so grateful for our new parlor furniture!

Be sure to stop by the Parlor and see the new to us couch, love seat and chair that were so graciously donated! While Charles and Bill Blake went and picked everything up, the Coalition came gathered the old set.  We are grateful for the many prayers and hands that go into making all things possible at Our Saviour!  God's timing is always perfect, he is so good.

Many thanks to Pinehurst Endodontics

Sewing Camp Week Two

A Note of Thanks from
Northern Moore Family Resource Center

"We feel so fortunate that you all have adopted us as your "sister" preschool. We are having a hectic summer. We are winding down from the last few days of our first preschool session, where we had a water play day. We also renovated the second part of the building to add a preschool class and kitchen. Having the kitchen will allow us to offer some full day classes this fall.

We are also working with the Town of Robbins to create a community green space, a portion of which will be used by HOPE Academy. We would love for you all to visit to see it. We are so grateful for your support!"
